That´s interesting. Others have said that she should be more like ML in a fashion way. I mean to not be so "boring" and "conservative" they would say.

So Sweden´s Waldorf & Statler have spoken...I wonder, if they said all this with a twinkle in their eyes or if they meant this 100% seriously, which would surprise me (?). If I would agree with them, I never would dare to say it this impolite way on TV. Then I would ridicule myself and not the RF.

But to dress like Märtha (of course not the yellow-red thing) wouldn´t be the worst for Victoria and king Carl Gustaf acting a bit more like Margrethe (with a bit more self irony, charm and wit) would be only good for the monarchy in Sweden.

Bah, the term "boring" is relative. What one might consider boring might be hugely interesting to another. I like Victoria's style as it is, frankly. She's exposed to the public enough without losing too much of her privacy and independence.

That would be funny. Maybe it would be a good thing. It would certainly give us a smile.

P.S. Princess Victoria made the silk screen motive of herself on the purse during the Prize Ceremony.

Thank you for the pictures, pdas. So Victoria has helped to make this bag. IMO it looks great, very individually.

Victoria - to me - is presenting a new side of herself with the attached image.

Her eyes here come across to me as a quintessential Swede ... something I have not seen of her to date. (Ah, the foibles of the aging process ...)

CP Victoria looks like she enjoyed herself! I like her butterfly broach, classic but very trend right now. CP Victoria is young and beautiful, but she dresses like a 40 year old mom sometimes. Same glasses, ponytail, minimal makeup look that we have seen for months! I was happy to see her in some colour, but she is wearing a turtleneck that either a little kid or a mom would wear. I am going to pray to the fashion gods that she choose a nice dress to wear to Noble and that she will wear a tiara other than the four button one she usually wears.


Nice Fendi purse though! Did she boworrow it from P Madeleine??

Haha, maybe it also works to tinker a little Voodoo-doll looking like Victoria, and dressed in a beautiful gala dress, in lively colours. She should look like a firework, sparkling and glittering.

Have you seen it at Madeleine? If not, I guess it´s hers. That she though uses (but very plain looking!!!) top designer wear, shows to me, that she is torn between the expectations of the (average) swedish people and the social circles, to which she belongs.

"AUSTRALIA is expecting a double dose of Scandinavian royalty in March
with Sweden announcing a visit by the heir to the Swedish throne, to
coincide with that of Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik of
Denmark.

Her Royal Highness, Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden will visit in
March for Swedish Style in Australia, a month-long celebration to
highlight Sweden's excellence in design, fashion, music, travel,
environmental sustainability and food.

The Danish Royal couple will visit Sydney from March 2, attending
various gala charity events.

The week of public engagements will include attending celebrations
for the 200th birthday of Danish storyteller Hans Christian Andersen
at the Danish-designed Opera House on March 7, before sharing a week
of private time with Princess Mary's family and friends.

The Swedish events, initiated by the Embassy of Sweden in Canberra,
aims to create new, and deepen existing, relationships between the
two countries.

Confirmed events include gala dinners, design exhibitions, a
performance of the ABBA musical Mamma Mia and a concert with pianist
Robert Wells, opera soprano Katarina Fallholm and Swedish pop star
Meja.

Karin Ehnbom-Palmquist, ambassador of Sweden to Australia, welcomed
the event, which will launch in Melbourne on March 10 and in Sydney
on March 16.

"Yes, it is true, Swedes love Australia," Mr Ehnbom-Palmquist said in
a statement.

"And yes, we do know Australians love ABBA and Bjorn Borg, but for
the first Swedish Style in Australia ever, we invite Australians to
experience modern Sweden in a range of exciting fields."

According to a poll on the site easyresearch.se the Swedes think, that Victoria is the most intelligent in the swedish Royal family. She has won with 34,7%, while her father has only gotten 2,9% of all votes. Queen Silvia was on the second, princess Madeleine on the third place.
Spokeswoman of the court Ann-Christine Jernberg thinks, that such a poll is tasteless/cheesy

Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden visits Media-Boom, a magazine made by disabled children and adults in Karlskrona, Sweden. The magazine is issued twice per year, and has made interviews with several famous Swedes. One of the staff , hands over a gift to crown Princess Victoria on December 16 , 2004: a T-shirt and a cap with Media-Booms logo.


It seems this wasn´t mentioned in the official calendar.

It was, but it wasn't precised. The calendar said:

> H.R.H. The Crown Princess
Visit to Karlskrona & attendance at the naming of a new corvette for the Navy
Karlskrona, Blekinge County

and in Swedish:

Besök i Karlskrona
Närvaro vid dop av Marinens korvett

Both these things are in Karlskrona, but they didn't specify what she would be doing in the first part of her visit. But now we know. :) The calendar has been updated since it was originally added though, the King has two things this Tuesday - from the beginning he had a clear week...

It seems Madeleine has infected her elder sister. Or why this high necked pullover + the neckerchief/scarf? Besides she looks as if she would have a cold.

To the article on the Australia-visit from Dennis (Thank you!):

1. What would happen, if she would really get engaged in January? Would Danne go with her? Or maybe this means, that she won´t get engaged before April, or even not in 2005 (???)

2. I wonder if Victoria will meet Frederik and Mary. Maybe she will travel to Australia earlier, so that they can meet in private.

3. With Australia Victoria will have visited all inhabited continents (yes, I know some ppl also live in the antarctic, but I guess for a swedish princess (and most persons), this isn´t very attractive)
